Confounding pre-match expectations, Italy dominated the first half, as Prandelli's decision to deploy a compact 3-4-2-1 system denied Spain's midfielders space in the centre of the pitch. The two wing-backs both played significant roles as well. Marauding right wing-back Christian Maggio went close on three occasions in the first half, while Emanuele Giaccherini hit the post in extra time.
